The battleEdit

It details the events in which Grom Hellscream grudgingly enters Ashenvale Forest on orders from Thrall to harvest lumber and build a settlement for the Horde. Grom and his forces are met by "warrior women" who are later known as night elf sentinels. As the night elves relentlessly fight back the orcs, they watch as Hellscream's forces desecrate their sacred woodlands and hack apart Trees of Life and other ancients for lumber. The night elves retreat deeper into Ashenvale as the Warsong clan begins constructing a settlement.
